Metallic effects

Bronze, gold, chrome, rust.. We can create metallic effects on any surface or material, from woods to walls or even on other metal surfaces. The key to metallic effects is to explore more than just the traditional techniques and application such as restoring, applying gold leaf, imitating rust- it can also be used in creative and interesting ways to transform furniture and walls creating unique finishes, almost impossible to imitate.

 I am a decorative artist offering specialist decoration finishes using traditional paint techniques such a marble effect, patina or ‘trompe-l’oeil’ to name a few.
Taking on board the tradition, I deliver a new way to understand the classic decorative painting adapting it to the new trends. With a more creative and contemporary eye, I offer these resources to any kind of client and project. From public spaces to private houses also doing furniture restoration or even sets for tv, films and theatre. Decorative paint could be as versatile as you want it, get in touch with your project and I will get back to you with the most suitable solution.

Just to tell you a bit about myself, I studied my B.A. in ‘Escuela Profesional Superior de Arte y Restauracion de Barcelona’ and continued with different M.A. courses in ‘Escuela Massana’ and ‘Escuela Superior de Diseño y Arte Llotja’.
I have been in this field for over 14 years and until 2012 I was working in ‘Arts & Claus’ one of the most important companies in the sector where I had the chance to work in different projects for hotels, retail shops, houses and other projects for restoration companies.
Since then I am working as a freelance developing very exciting artworks for private clients such architects, interior designers and art directors.
